From the first time it aired on CBS in December of 1987 – Will Vinton’s Claymation Christmas Celebration was an instant classic. The trouble is that since it’s last airing it’s been kinda hard to come by. This Christmas Special doesn’t get any airplay on Television and the streaming services don’t offer it to watch either. It’s almost like the show was forgotten. Not to this 80s buff though.
Saturday mornings were wonderful in the ’80s. The shows that came on T.V. were so far ahead of their time. This show, however, was not one of them. Hey Vern, It’s Ernest starred Ernest from the popular film franchise including Ernest Goes To Camp and Ernest Goes To Jail. The show revolves around him bugging his “friend”, Vern, the whole time with some gags thrown in from other cast members. Unfortunately with every show came the same gags so I have included the first three episodes for your viewing pleasure. Enjoy and don’t forget to comment.
